    The Game Ball Thread: Wk.10 vs Ravens

    No reason to decline, since the clock would next start on the snap no matter what. If you declined they could just jump offside again.

    Sure, safety free kick rules are the same as any other kickoff except you are allowed to punt if you want

    College Football Week Eight Game Thread

    The ball does not need to get inside the pylon to be a touchdown, the pylon is an extension of the goal line. If the ball goes over or touches the tiniest fraction of the outside edge of the pylon it is a touchdown. EDIT: To overturn, the replay official would need a conclusive camera shot that...

    Tennis 2020: There is an I in Thiem

    You really can. They all have some weaknesses in the resume: Federer: Fewest Masters titles, losing H2H record vs both Nadal: Far fewer weeks at no. 1 than the two other guys, never won the tour finals. Djokovic: Fewer Grand Slams than the other two.

    College Football 2020 Week Six Game Thread

    I’m going to go again and contradict myself here. Been taking a few more looks at it and I think the officials missed it. Now the interesting part is trickling out post-game: The officials knew immediately they missed it and that it was a backwards pass during the replay. But replay decided...

    Different enforcement spots make it impossible. If the penalty by the offense is 10 yards from the previous spot, and the penalty by the defense is 15 yards from the end of the play, how do you adjudicate the difference?

    Don’t like the look of the referee throwing the flag 30 feet into the air. He looked angry.

    Huh? Nobody finds a block in the back by the kicking team to be an odd foul?
